Israel and Hamas, the Palestinian militant group, have agreed to a ceasefire that will finish an 11-day battle that has killed at the least 230 Palestinians and 12 Israelis.

The truce got here a day after the US stepped up stress on Israel to finish its bombardment of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, with US president Joe Biden telling Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday that he “anticipated a big de-escalation at present on the trail to a ceasefire”.

Netanyahu initially responded by saying he was “decided to proceed this operation till its goal is met”.

However after Israel’s safety cupboard met on Thursday, it stated it had voted unanimously in favour of a “mutual and unconditional” Gaza ceasefire.

Hamas stated the combating would stop at 2am native time on Friday.

The ceasefire was proposed by Egypt, which has mediated together with the US and Qatar. The battle which started on Might 10 triggered the worst combating between Israel and the Palestinians since a 2014 battle with Hamas, and sparked communal unrest between minority Arab Israelis and Jews in Israel and unrest within the occupied West Financial institution.
